27 OT--B

27 OT—B (10-8)

Processional: Lord, All Things are Guided still ( SALZBURG )

Kyrie: Missa de Angelis

Psalm: May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives W 638

Offertory: Search Me, O God (Phillip Young)

Communion: In salutari tuo
Laudate Dominum (Mozart)

Thanksgiving: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling W 172

Recessional: The Head That Once Was Crowned With Thorns W 266

We introduced the "de angelis" Kyrie in the following manner: cantor w/organ sings melisma on "Kyrie"; congregation joins in on "eleison" with "fuller" organ. Same with "Christe" and the last "Kyrie." No repeats and last melismatic "Kyrie" omitted.

The hope is to do it like this for a few weeks and then have the congregation sing the whole thing w/organ and then eventually without accompaniment. We'll see how it goes . . .

Also, I'm very blessed to have a young voice student who sang the Mozart "Laudate" very beautifully. And she can blend!!!

I considered this use of that Kyrie. My beef with it, and maybe this is no beef, but, the Sacramentary seems to envision the congregation singing the entire Greek text. But yeah, the music does lend itself naturally to that kind of treatment.

I love listening to Mozart's Laudate Dominum..... sounds like it was beautiful.

The hymnal at my church doesn't have "The Head that Once was Crowned" or even have the St. Magnus tune!

I just started a church music blog, if you're interested. One of my early posts mentioned one of yours. You can check it out at http://laudamus-te.blogspot.com/
